CAM LEVINS BREAKS CANADIAN MARATHON RECORD!

What an amazing performance put on by Cam Levins in his Marathon debut. He ran 2:09:22 breaking Jerome Drayton’s record of 2:10:09. It looks like our Canadian hopeful is back and fit and ready to start chipping away at faster times as he starts into his Marathon career. All the best, Cam!

CLINICS

Around the Bay

We’re already getting geared up and organized for the start of our 2019 run clinics! The first one of the year will be our 2019 Around the Bay Training Clinic. The 12 week program will begin the week of January 6th. Whether you are planning on running the 5k or 30k there will be a group for you to train with. This is great motivation to stay fit over the cold and dark Winter months! The clinic includes two coached runs during the week as well as a group long run on Saturday morning, all leaving from the Runner's Den. Runners will get 15% off all purchases in the store, and there will be many giveaways and prizes!

For more information check out our CLINICS page. And don’t hesitate to contact us at jordan@runnersden.com if you have an questions.

Sulphur Springs Trail Race

For the first time ever we will be running a clinic focused on trail running. For those who are looking to make that first step into trail running as well as those who are seasoned trail veterans, this clinic is for you. The Sulphur Springs Trail Race weekend will be the goal that we collectively work towards. Depending on the race distance you choose, your plan will be tailored to set you up for success on race day. The clinic will meet at the Runner’s Den on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for coached runs/workouts. On Saturdays we will head to the start of the Sulphur Springs Trail Race and complete our group long runs.

There will be more information posted on our website soon. If you have any questions, let us know!
